Simon, I was not complaining about the new search engine. I was just stating that 100x22kb of gif data is alot of unneccesary caching even for those with broadband. Someone with dial-up wouldn't dare to even attempt to download a 3.1GB movie unless he/she doesn't mind the 3 week download ;) Have no problem with the new interface but my T1 gets bogged down with the gifs. Just a friendly observation. :)

No, I know you weren't complaining about the whole thing - but I wanted to know if other users had feedback.

Out of interest, can you navigate past the page while it's still loading the images? I use Mozilla, and it lets me do that, but I wondered if some browsers don't.

s!

Yeah, I don't know why a T1 can't handle it. My DSL loads up the page in no time (the images come later).

I use Firefox.

It seems like, I'd click RECENT ADDITIONS in the old format, and get a single page with every film in a library such as OPEN SOURCE. So, if I hadn't been to the site for a week or two and someone had added fifty films, I could see them all at once without having to click the little number at the bottom of the page and click through who knows how many pages until I've exhausted the new listings. Also, the thumbnails on the search page do seem an unnecessary addition that slows everybody down.

I dunno - maybe I liked the old engine better because it did exactly what I wanted quickly, and I was used to it. Can't complain too hard, since it's free.
